[ applause ] >> we don't hide behind our beliefs. argue for them because a budget is more than just a list of numbers. it's an expression of our governing philosophy. our budget draws a very sharp contrast with the left. it says to the people in unmistakable terms, they are the party of shared hardship.

4:20 pm
these excerpts came about. what it was was the tape was issued to the media by the authorities. what nobody had done was really beyond the interrogation really seen what else was on the tape. they spooled through it, got to the very end and we finally see these pictures. raising the question of why hasn't the prosecution used these and the defense used them possibly of showing her emotional distress after the killing of her boyfriend, travis alexander? no answers from either. it really does look like something out of a movie, which is why they're making one. >> harris: tell us more about that. >> well, we've actual lea got the casting call here that was actually issued to hollywood. it's the lifetime movie they're going to make. they make prosecuting casey anthony, was one of the biggest made for tv movies ever. they describe the character as quite damning. head turning, they want an actress who can give a palpable,

4:34 pm
it wouldn't be appropriate. and my response was, general holder, i'm not asking for your views on propriety. [ laughter ] you are the chief legal advisor for the united states of america. what is your view the department justice have a view on whether the constitution allows our government to kill u.s. citizens on u.s. soil? three times he responded, it wouldn't be appropriate. it was almost as if he didn't understand the question. you know, maybe that says something about how the left views constitutionality, in their minds, appropriate and constitutional are one and the same. >> we're here to restore america and the rest is just theatrics, the rest is sound and series. it's just making noise. that sums up the job president

obama does today. now, he's considered a good politician, which is like saying bernie madoff was a good salesman. [ cheering ] the difference being the president is using our money. you know, i spend most of my time in the heart of the heartland of america. i have news for the permanent political class in washington. while they're busy worrying about their own political future, things are bad out here. nearly 8% unemployment rate, it doesn't begin to capture how bad things are. even the dismal rates announced of 1 point% economic growth, that doesn't tell the story of the pain that americans feel. our president fancies himself as the champion of the middle class. yet since he came on scene, even those lucky enough to have a job, they're working more for
4:36 pm
less. >> you know, it's very interesting, the outpouring of sentiment that i received after the speech at the national prayer breakfast. i got so much mail, letters, books, just amazing from everybody. and some of the more poignant ones were from older americans who said they had given up and they were just waiting to die. now they felt a sense of revival once again. [ cheering ] and that's very sad that we have reached a point in our lives where so many people who feel that they're not represented anymore. and this is something i want you people who are in congress and who are in the senate and who are in the white house to understand. you work for the people. you represent the people! just understand that. [ applause ] i also got a few nastygrams from
4:37 pm
people, how dare you insult my president? you are a n word and you need to get back -- you know, it's just unbelievable. you know. when did we reach a point where you have to have a certain philosophy because of the color of your skin? when did that happen? >> harris: other speakers today included minnesota congresswoman michelle bachman, newt gingrich, and wisconsin governor scott walker. the issue of gun control and second amendment rights getting a lot of attention this week at cpac and just today a new development in the state of new york. hours ago, it became law that some members of our military may not be allowed to own a gun. it's part of one of the nation's toughest gun control laws on the books and in response, the department of veterans affairs says it will not comply with the new requirement to hand over the names of certain patients.
4:38 pm
those who they believe may be a danger to themselves or others. eric shaun in our new york city news room. what does the law exactly say? >> the law requires the mental health care professionals, that they tell government officials if they think their patient is dangerous. the information would be used to make sure people who should not have a gun do not. it was passed in the wake of the horrible massacre in newtown by new york governor andrew cuomo. he points out that any information the doctors share with authorities would still be confidential. >> some organization just say at the beginning of the day, all communications are confidential, period, all information is confidential, period. so it's going to have to be viewed in light of their legal structure in the first place. >> supporters hope the reporting requirement could prevent future shooting sprees by making sure imbalanced people do not own firearms. >> harris: eric, what about the opponents? >> some worry it would have the opposite effect and could
4:39 pm
backfire, result in patients not getting help and it's really touched a nerve, especially with veterans. the veterans administration itself will not even comply with the law. the v.a. says, quote, federal law safeguarded the confidentiality do not authorize v.a. mental health members to comply with this state law. under the supremacy clause of the u.s. constitution, federal laws take precedence over conflicting state and local laws. some veterans groups fear that vets could be unfairly stigma advertised and doctors could take action without sharing the confidential information. jesse duff is a form gunnery soldier who is now with concerned veterans for america. >> most often veterans are very nervous about reporting medical issues if they don't feel there will be a confidentiality. so anybody who had experienced any type of trauma or has emotional or mental issues based on their experiences in combat or even while serving on active duty may be very reluctant or hesitant to get the help or assistance that they need. >> and it's not just veterans
4:40 pm
groups. other mental health experts worry about equating mental illness with violence and say people should be encouraged to speak treatment, instead of adding extra complications that could potentially prevent someone from seeking mental health treatment. >> harris: i have to think people watching this may be scratching their heads 'cause we always have to sign those of white house are not in the military, that hppa document, which means that certain things about us cannot be shared, like mental evaluations. >> yeah, that's true. you see these privacy laws are just tremendous. you have a stack like this when you go to the doctor. but this effort trying to -- aimed at preventing what happened, for example, at newtown. >> eric shawn, thank you. afghan's marching against american military members after years of war and trying to protect the people there from the taliban. a protest in afghanistan's capital today and it could signal growing dissent for u.s. special forces stationed in a key area of battle. 500 demonstrators taking part in
